Jack Dorsey,  Chief executive officer of Twitter, has said in an interview that the microblogging platform could soon allow users to edit their tweets. If and when it happens it will be a welcome move because many users can avoid the anxiety of deleting and reloading tweet when typos have been committed, or wrong media file have been uploaded.

 

Dorsey said in an interview with Joe Rogan when asked about likely probably the most. Based on a report by 9to5Mac this is not the very first time when we've seen him remark about it attribute, but the most recent info does signify that the company is trying to figure out it. 

 

As per the report, when Rogan enquired about a tweet editing system which enables users to check the original version of the Tweet to avoid confusion ,  Jack responded with “exactly that” saying that the company was looking into something along comparable lines.

 

Twitter CEO further added that Twitter as a stage was based on the way SMS worked. Which means that the company didn't think about adding the edit option because it mimicked SMS support where users didn't have some option to edit their messages. 

 

If we try to analyse the draws back of this move, editing tweets would be quite challenging for Twitter as an edited tweet would mess things up for those who retweeted or embedded the original post, as it would seem like they misinterpreted the tweet in question.  Also, Tweets are also embedded in various news articles and later edits on Twitter would make things more complicated.
